About GPS Cycle Computers
GPS receivers are now made waterproof, lightweight and small enough to fit on a bike easily. There are 2 basic choices to take on your bike: a GPS unit designed primarily for navigation with a dedicated bike mount, particularly suitable for cycle touring and finding your way in unfamiliar territory, like the Garmin eTrex Vista Cx; or a dedicated bike computer that uses GPS to track your training routes and provide detailed analysis of your workout like the Edge 305, with more limited navigation capabilities. Most units come with only very basic maps installed and you may need to purchase more detailed maps for your area to be loaded onto the unit for navigation.
All electrical goods sold on wiggle that come with a mains power supply are supplied with a UK plug. Please check the product description to see if any other plugs are known to be included in the box, otherwise you may need an adapter for use in your country.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
You also have up to 3 pages of fields available and each can be configured differently. You can also set the Garmin to auto scroll between them.
There are heaps of available fields, so you can go nuts with information, or just keep it simple. It depends on your preference.
And yes, both computers are identical, just differ by colour.
you can customize all display sections.
However, didn't come with the Australian socket so I have to recharge using computer.
The only thing I have noticed is the "Player" on the Connect website don't seem to work very well on Safari.
it has no storage card as it acts as a memory stick stylee device. it has its own storage. that will - after time, obviously get full
Tip: you need to name your bikes in Edge if you want to input current odo readings.
Could you do a weeks worth of riding before you did it? 2 weeks? More?
I bought one and did 1000's(sorry don't know the exact millage) of miles before it got full, and had to download so you should be fine for a month or so.
Just remember to charge, because no power = no data!
the route will appear on the screen as a line. you will appear as an arrow. you merely keep to the line - keep on it, as it were until you reach the end flag or it joins back up as a loop. which means still plenty of adventurous stylee looking out for road signs and roads, just watch where your going when your joining yourself up to the line on the screen!
